Great Value!

Hotel was great and comfortable, the only downside that I feel is important with any hotel is bathroom cleanliness. Your could tell they try to do their best with the age of the bathroom fixtures, and the size of the bathroom was great. The toilet had a discomforting amount of hair on it and the ceiling in the shower showed traces of mold.

New Renovations and upgrades are well worth the visit.

I grew up in lima for the first 24 years of my life and I have visited this location many times when I lived in lima, but now that I have gone back for my father's funeral this past week, the upgrades and renovations are remarkable. The rooms were clean and updated, the breakfast buffet was awesome with fresh waffles and a wide variety of options. The location was excellent, and is located in an area that is overflowing with shopping and food options. I will be back to this location everytime life brings me back to my childhood home.

Good value--Nicely updated.

Check-in was friendly and efficient. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast buffet was fresh and more than sufficient. Close to a number of restaurants.

Weekend Getaway

My wife and I went here for her birthday and a weekend get away. Well I did surprise her with this little trip. We enjoyed our stay there at the hotel. It was very nice that it had a refrigerator in the room. Made it handy to keep the wine cool... We love that the restaurants were in walking distance. Also we went to J's Sports pub for a drink and enjoyed the entertainment. We would stay here again it was alot of fun and nice to getaway!!

Hotel was a nice place to stay if looking for a place to crash.

I booked the room in advance and was happy with the location as it was right off the interstated and within 10 minutes of where I was going in the morning. The staff was nice and the room was in great shape. The hotel was under reovation though and it was a little hard to navigate around. Also the breakfast that was served was not very good.

Not bad for the price

They were doing some renovations during my stay so obviously making some improvements which is always a good thing. They had lots to choose from in the way of places to eat close by that also delivered. Overall not bad for the price.

Great location, facility and price.

When we got to the hotel they placed us in a room that was suppose to be nonsmoking but it seemed the person who was there before us broke the rules. I asked to be placed in another room as my son is asthmatic and they accomodated me with no problem. They were very pleasant and apologetic. It was a great place to be at.
